News View...

I don't watch much News stations as a rule, but this morning I've had recently added cable channel BBC World on and it's amazingly different from, say, CNN. It's classier to start with, and doesn't seem to rely on the usual sensationalism and fear mongering that North American news networks rely on.

And after the lead news stories were covered, instead of 24 hour Paris Hilton coverage, they did a human interest story on a sandwich maker in Thailand who lost it all in their financial crisis and started selling home made sandwiches which grew into a business again. Their sports coverage went with soccer, Formula 1, and cricket instead of Barry Bonds fake home run chase. They need to add hockey coverage though.

It's a refreshing tone of British class on the state of the usual depressing news of the world. North American news networks could learn a thing or two from them.
